AudioControl Store

For over two decades, AudioControl has been designing and manufacturing award-winning autosound products at our factory located in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. During this period, countless sound-off winning contestants have chosen AudioControl products to give them the competitive edge. "Can you really win without AudioControl", was part of an article written commenting on competition winning systems. Nothing sounds better than an awesome recording played back on a kickbutt system. Unfortunately, the acoustics of your vehicle can take away from your systems performance. While AudioControl products do not change the laws of physics (although they act like they do), autosound enthusiasts have long known that AudioControl products "make good stereo sound better".


LCQ-1 - 6 Channel Line Out converter with EQ and AccuBASS™

Audio enthusiasts can now rejoice with the introduction of AudioControl's LCQ-1, a powerful six-channel signal processor that provides a gateway between factory installed source units and after-market amplifiers. The LCQ-1 allows Mobile Electronics enthusiasts to easily "tune" their audio systems and receive truly amazing sound quality. An ideal combination of discrete equalization controls combined with AudioControl's unique OEM integration circuitry, the LCQ-1 maximizes the performance of factory installed audio systems. Enthusiasts, who want amazing audio performance that only comes from custom-tuned audio systems, will truly enjoy the LCQ-1.

Basic, inexpensive, passive line output converters generally deliver poor sound quality and diminishing bass response. The active circuitry used in the LCQ-1 provides dramatically better sound quality and enhances the bass response. No longer will audio enthusiasts have to compromise when performing basic amplifier additions to factory installed audio systems. Enthusiasts looking for great sound will really love this product.

Designed for maximum sound quality and enhanced audio performance, the LCQ-1 is the latest AudioControl processor to incorporate AccuBASS™. This patent pending process automatically corrects for the bass roll-off that is common with many factory-installed audio systems. AudioControl engineers designed the LCQ-1 to be a very high-value processor, so subsequently it is equipped with a number of installer friendly features that simplify the OEM connection and calibration process.

Key Features:

Speaker-Level Inputs:

If you are like many people who like the look and features of their factory-installed source unit, but feel your system overall is lacking power and bass, we have good news. The LCQ-1 has high-impedance speakerlevel inputs that allow it to accept amplified signals (up to 400 watts per channel) from most factory-installed source units (even Bose) and output a high-quality pre-amp signal via standard RCA connectors. This will allow you to add better-quality amplifiers, processors and speakers while keeping the convenience features of your factory-installed source unit. Unlike inexpensive speaker-level and line-output converters available, the LCQ-1 offers high sound quality.

Auxiliary Source Input:

A set of auxiliary RCA inputs connects the audio signal of an iPod or other stereo source into the system through the LC8i. Tapping the included LC8i remote knob will change from Main input to the Aux inputs and tapping again will change the knob function from subwoofer level control to auxiliary volume control.

GTO™ Signal-Sensing Inputs:

Most factory-installed source units lack the features that make it easy to upgrade with really good-sounding, performance aftermarket products. One of those key features is a 12-volt trigger that will turn on devices like the LC8i and your external amplifiers. Therefore, we have equipped your LC8i with our unique GTO™ (Great Turn On) signal-sensing inputs. Once the GTO input of your LC8i detects a speaker-level signal on the Main Inputs, it powers up. When the speaker-level signal goes away, your LC8i will automatically turn-off. Optionally, your LC8i is also equipped with a standard 12-volt trigger (Remote In) that will allow you to turn on your LC8i in the traditional manner.

Internal Channel Summing:

The LC8i has the capability to combine together multiple (2, 4, 6, or 8) input signals from the factory source unit into 2 channels. This is page particularly handy when using the LC8i with a factory system that has multiple, actively crossed over signals being sent from an OEM source unit or amplifier(s). For example, in some vehicles there is an actively crossed over tweeter, midrange, and woofer all in the front of the vehicle. The LC8i lets you take all of those signals and sum them together to get a high quality, full range, pre-amp signal without the use of any additional cables or hardware.

AutoMode Inputs:

Sometimes in life (and car audio) we need more outputs than inputs. Therefore we have equipped your LC6i with AutoMode inputs that take the Channel 2 signal and automatically feeds it to the Channel 3 outputs, provided there is no signal present on the Channel 3 inputs. This means your LC6i will accept two input channels and give you four output channels. Or it can accept four input channels and give you six output channels.

Equalizer Specifications

Type of Equalizer
This determines the way the equalizer processes the signal from the source unit. A parametric equalizer allows to you adjust the center point of the frequency band you are adjusting as well the bandwidth which can be narrowed or widened. A graphic equalizer has fixed frequency bands and bandwidth and only the frequency bands can be adjusted. A digital equalizer uses a software program to tune your system.
A graphic equalizer typically has more adjustable bands and is less expensive, whereas a parametric will have fewer bands but offer a greater level of control and provide more tuning options. Digital equalizers will tune your system with the most detail and precision but require a computer and are typically a little higher in price.
Graphic
Equalizer Bands
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the receiver has. The better the EQ, the more likely you will be able to "tweak" your sounds to your desire.
6 band
Equalizer Frequencies
The frequency range that allows control of the center frequency of each equalization band.
31.5 - 8000 Hz
Built-in Bass Reconstruction
Bass reconstructors, or bass enhancers, improve low frequency reproduction in a car audio system with at least one subwoofer. These bass expander products will help your subs produce accurate bass thumps.
No
Line Driver
A line driver is a small amplifier used to support the strength of the audio signal coming from the source unit.
Yes
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
Yes
Total Number of Inputs
This is the total number of input connections that go into the unit.
6
Total Number of Outputs
This is the total number of output connections that the unit will produce.
6
Signal Boost/Cut
The available signal boost or cut for each of the frequency bands.
12 dB
Max Output Level
The maximum level (in volts) of signal output. A higher level will increase the clarity and boost your signal.
8.5 volts
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 22000 Hz
THD (Total Harmonic Distortion)
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
0.01%
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.

Works but a headache

July 27, 2016

I bought the lcq1 from sonic and installed it myself. It works great and does give great sound quality besides the fact that there will be a slight hiss in the system. This was my second unit and it still had the hiss. I talked to both sonic and audiocontrol and both were great and gave me many solutions but unfortunately none of them were able to rid of it. I've spent so many hours trying get rid of it by trying multiple different wiring configurations and nothing worked. My gains were very low and the hiss was still there. The only way to get it almost gone was to have the gains and output on the lcq1 all the way down. When I did, it was still there but very subtle. And at that point, your music is quieter than it was just running off of stock power. I also tried ground loop idolaters and noise filters and they did nothing. I have a 4 channel and a mono with a sub hooked up to it and tested both amps with the lcq1 not hooked up in the loop, no hiss. I listen to music pretty loud when I'm in the car so I don't really hear it when I'm cruising but when the music is at a very low volume, you can hear the hiss. Especially when I went to a drive in, it was very annoying. In my situation, there's no dash kit available for an aftermarket headunit for my car so I'm using this. If you can, I would opt to just get an aftermarket headunit
